2008 Cadillac Dts - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

When the key is held in the start position for .4 seconds. The pcm/ecm has a start timer, it will crank until timer is timed out even though you release the key. That is normal. I don't know how long the timer runs?

As far as vehicle starting, check the basics. If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, check fuel injector pulse. Any applicable trouble codes? I can only help with testing.

Could be as simple as a bad relay. I would start by replacing it with a known good one of the same type.

My automotive database says you have to remove headlamp assembly to replace bulb. To remove headlamp assembly, you need to remove front bumper fascia.
Why in the world should you have to remove front of vehicle just to change a bulb, I don't know? My database is the only info I have to go by. I doubt I can walk you through it, step by step, I can't see anything from here.

ensure your wheel nuts are secure.
check your tyres for stones /nails etc

If you hear sound when you turn the wheel but the car is stationary
I would advise you visit a tyre /steering /brake specialist if you cannot locate the source of the noise.

Check for proper refrigerant charge, and verify that the heater blend door is operating correctly. If there is a vacuum leak under the dashboard, the blend door may not be closing all the way.

Automotive heater problems can have several sources
  • poor flow of hot coolant (the source of heat)
  • poor air flow - bad blower or air plumbing problems such as blend door position.
The treatment for these varies so if you can, identify the source of the problem. Ths vid may not be DTS but it should give you an idea.
